7.3 Activities Report (Form B)
The Activities Report is designed to enable constructive, formal feedback to take place during the nominated period, and as such supports the ongoing, cyclical nature of performance management. This optional Activities Report is an interim check, used to review progress towards mutually agreed goals, and provide the opportunity to discuss any difficulties relating to goals achievement, before such matters become the focus of the more formal Learning and Development Review. In many instances, such intervention will be helpful.
7.3.1 Preparing the Activities Report
The report should be completed jointly by both the employee and the supervisor, against the attributes, activities goals and development goals as agreed in the preceding Future Activities Plan.
It should provide a brief but accurate ‘snapshot' of achievements towards identified goals and creates an opportunity for goals to be revised in light of impacting factors such as changes within the faculty/section or the University.
All Activities Reports completed during the year should be tabled and considered by the employee and the supervisor in reviewing progress towards the achievement of goals, and the setting of goals for the next period of review (which occurs at the time of the Learning and Development Review meeting).
Progress towards mutually agreed goals requires some supporting evidence. The responsibility for compiling this evidence lies with the employee. Progress towards goals should be substantiated by public information documents such as faculty workload formulae, teaching timetables, publication lists, work reports, and positive feedback wherever possible.
